Russell Wilson will not leave Emerald City in the summer

One person who thinks that Dange’Russ’ Wilson is going nowhere this summer is Seahawks outside linebacker, K.J. Wright. The 32-year-old veteran claims Wilson means ‘too much to this city’ and will remain in Seattle when the season starts in September.

He said, “I was kind of caught off-guard myself but looking back at it, Russ isn’t going anywhere. As long as I’m in Seattle, Russ is going to be the quarterback.

“He means too much to us. He means way too much to this organization, he means way too much to this city.
